Operating System Vulnerability Scorecard For July 2007

Summer and work travel have really had an impact and I’ve missed a couple of months of scorecards, so last weekend, I decided to dig in and catch up to July.   I hit a few road bumps:

  • Sun changed their Security Alerts web site, making it a bit more challenging.  I gave up for now, but will try to add them back with subsequent scorecards. 
  • Novell, in a similar but different move, created a new psdb page for their version Enterprise Linux v10 SP1 products.  At first, I thought they had not released any patches since mid-June.  Nope.  Let me give you details.  If you want to see:

In addition, I wanted to add in the Red Hat EL 5 versions of client and server, since they’ve been available for over 3 months now, and that took some time as well.  Anyway, back in action now.

Here are the sections for this month:

  1. Year-to-date 2007 Client and Server charts for all vulnerabilities for
